Pacific ties

New Zealand is part of the Pacific region. We are connected through geography, culture, family, history. In Samoan there is a concept of the va, the connections bewteen people. This poem was inspired when I was listening to a colleague talk about their Samoan family and their childhood before they moved to NZ.

The naivgators
Navigating the space
the connections.
Space between and within
connections,
across time and place.
Connections
bonds across the ocean
Pacific
non-specific.
Connections
Joining, rejoinders
Connections
Navigators' tools
Connections
Family
Connections
Bonds
Look how far we've come.
